The neighbors decided to join us. We enjoyed the company.
The water was dark and I was looking every where for snakes. We didn't see any at the pond. However, on the walk back to our house, my husband went one way and I went the other. Just before I got out of the woods and back into the pasture, my husband yelled that he'd just seen a snake just ahead of him. That made me speed up and I hurried back to the safety of my yard. I don't think I'll be making any more trips back to the pond until winter.
